As the reader of the weekly newsletter, you are the hero. Most of you are already committed to making disciples. But you face challenges—and we exist to help you with those challenges.

That is why this Thursday afternoon we have a special webinar with disciple maker, Mandisa. That is right, you may know her as a former American Idol contestant and a popular Christian singer. But she is also a disciple maker.

Please join us for the webinar this Thursday, August 9th at 1:00 pm (CST). Mandisa will help us address some key challenges. There will also be time for live Q&A during the webinar. She will answer questions like these:

  • Don’t have time or space for disciple-making?
  • Want to disciple people outside the church?
  • Think younger people don’t want you to disciple them?
  • Don’t know how to disciple creatives?


For Jesus' Kingdom,





Executive Director,
